Definitely. The first book actually left me in suspense with so many questions on whats going to happen next.

In my experience it was a good book, with lively characters. The plotline was good too, especially the ending...... Would love the sequel

I agree. An important death would somewhat wrap it up, especially if it were mysterious, like Tom passing the same way as Bob-Bob.

Nothing in the first book to entice me to read a sequel.

I had a hard time getting through this book. I don't think I will try the sequel. The character I think Sheldon did the best work with was Myra, perhaps he should focus on her for the second book.

I am torn on reading the sequel when it is released. I liked the book very much. However, I prefer books to have a finite beginning and end. I like the feeling of satisfaction from feeling like I know the entire story. This book left me 'hanging' in order to set up for a sequel. If there are supposed to be three books, I am afraid the 2nd book would just do the same.

I didn't like it as much but I hope the second installment is better

No I am not going to read the sequel. Even thought I gave it a good rating, it really is not my kind of read. If I were to read the sequel the characters I would like to see again are Sarah and Tom to see if their relationship progresses. Tom is a good guy and deserves to know Sarah after how well he took care of her. His place would be a better place for her to live.

I'd definitely read the sequel. I'd like to know more about Becky's past. I'd also want to know more about Buckhorn International and maybe a romantic relationship between Myra and Sergei :D .

Even though I enjoyed reading this book, I don't think I'll delve into the sequel. I have to be really in love with the characters, the setting, the plot, basically everything about the book to want to read more. Unfortunately, I wasn't overwhelmingly captivated, so this one is a no for me.

Yes I would like to read the sequel. Am still much interested in knowing what will transpire after they are out of the park. I still want Sarah to continue as Strong Heart in the next sequel. I so enjoyed her character.
